Rep. Jerrold Nadler to Reintroduce Uniting American Families Act

Nadler_2Immigration Equality reports that New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler plans to reintroduce the Uniting American Families Act on February 12th. Towleroad interviewed Nadler at Obama inauguration festivities last month.

The UAFA seeks to eliminate discrimination in the immigration laws by permitting permanent partners of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents to obtain lawful permanent resident status in the same manner as spouses of citizens and lawful permanent residents.

Immigration Equality is urging citizens to ask their Representative to be a co-sponsor of the Act.

  2. This piece of legislation is LONG overdue. It is the height of injustice to force committed same-sex couples to have to choose between the person they love and the country they love.

    We just don’t have priorities straight as a country when grant random mail-order brides immigration rights, yet jail same-sex couples for exercising their rights be together and just left alone.

  4. I love the title of this bill. The real anti-family forces in this country are those who oppose equal rights.

  5. I have written to a few Reps. and Senators about this bill. Please..please.. do your part and call your local representative to co-sponsor this bill. IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE!This bill is about equality and fundamental citizen rights. There's a template on Immigration Equality website on what you can say when you call your local reps. And I echo my fellows Towleroadians, THIS BILL IS LONG OVERDUE!

  6. It's disgraceful that isn't mandated in international law already. There are literally thousands of GLTB families who have to either move abroad or live in fear because of this immigration law injustice.

    It's past time this was resolved. I'll call my representative today.

  7. I really hope everyone will support this bill. I am moving to Canada in the fall so I can be with my spouse who is from China. There was no way I could sponsor him into this country. So in the middle of this economic depression I am giving up my job and most likely foreclosing on my home to start a life with him.

  8. Please do your part and write to your local representative! My partner is from Italy and is not able to live in the USA due to this horrible injustice. Please help us stay together!!!

  9. I'm very hopeful about this.

    But hope can't mean taking it for granted! Send letters, talk it up to straight allies!

  10. For those of us who cry every night because we can not be with the one we love I hope that the act passes so people like me can be reunited with the love of their life.
